Christmas Gift Round Up 4: Handdyed Yarn

Remember all that time ago when I was dying things? And I couldn’t tell you what things? (I’m good with secrets in that I have a lot of them…I apologize). Some of those things were two skeins of 100% wool for my Momma.yellow and blue dye

She likes green so I decided to experiment with my yellow and blue Jacquard Dyes to come up with two different shades that I think would look nice together if she chooses to knit them into the same project.in the dye pot

After they spent some time in the pot, they went into the green house to dry.  Because having a green house attached to the front, south-facing wall of your house is awesome. two green skeins

They got re-skeined and wrapped up, I think she likes them 🙂

Even more gift round ups to come!  What did you make for your loved ones this season?

WIP Wednesday: Armwear

Happy Wednesday!  Two days from now, I’ll be on my way to Austin, TX to watch the Formula 1 race and then Thanksgiving here in the US is right around the corner, it’s going to be a busy month (already has been) but a fun one!

I’ve been dealing with some wrist pain again, but am trying to take it slow.  The past few days I’ve been able to get bits and pieces of knitting in but taking regular breaks so that I don’t make the pain worse.

lovely rich green wool

The result? A finished fingerless mitt and half of it’s match.

I’m looking forward to getting these to their new owner, hopefully she’ll love them as much as I do!  How can that color not be loved?

Linking up with Tami as usual 🙂  What are you working on this week?

New to the Shop

I have some new knits coming to the shop this week, namely this deep sapphire blue lacy slouch (the pattern for which can be found here)

Such Deep Rich Colors

And this amazingly soft sapphire, lime and cream scarf

Can you feel the "soft" emanating from the photo?

Both are super soft, knit from wool blends, merino and the scarf even has some *cashmere* so they are some amazing, luxurious accessories for a lucky fall wearer.

What have you been knitting up lately?  Is it cold in your neck of the woods yet?
